Election SOS Story Database


The Election SOS story and pitch database showcases great examples of election coverage. It has been built for reporters who are on a deadline, searching for inspiration, or just need a bit of a break. All the examples should be easy to turn around while still informing and engaging your audience. The stories in this database were found between September and December 2020. However, many of these questions remain relevant outside that timeframe.

If you develop any content using the pitch database we would love to share it. Submit work here or in the form at the bottom of the page.
